"Oh! F*ck wank bugger sh*tting arse head and hole!"

Five points to whoever gets the movie reference...

Yeah -- so, I survived a near-death experience in an automobile, only to spend two days shopping for gifts for friends and family (and pretty much all I bought was a sweater and some coffee for me), only to watch Auburn almost blow the SEC Championship, only to discover...

...today...

...I'm getting sick. I think I'm coming down with that change-of-the-weather crud/flu that everyone gets.

Crap. It means (a) my sinus cavities are opening and draining, meaning a LOT of airflow comes into my nose, drying out my throat. Bloody good thing I don't have to, oh, TALK at Interest Sessions for the next day or so..., and (b) I get to take drugs, slowing me down, and making my reaction time on important things -- like work -- worse than it already is.

I just want to go homer and watch Marx Brothers movies now. Good thing I don't have to be at work until 8:00 tonight. OH. WAIT. THAT'S RIGHT. *sigh*

(This, kiddies, is a rant. A small one, but that ol' vim, vigor, and pissy attitude is rearing its ugly head.)

Ranting? You call that "ranting?"

Sounds like whining to my old ears...

Whhaaaahhh! I got a runny nose and only buy stuff for myself!

Whhaaaahhh! I have to work for a living!

You want to hear a REAL rant?

Do you want to witness first hand what a REAL RANT is like?

Okay, Henry Junior, you got one!

WHO THE HELL IS OKAYING THIS "IDENTITY CRISIS" MINI-SERIES?!?

I mean, HOLY FARGING HELL!

They do a huge event just to make Elongated Man cry all the time?!? Who asked for that?!

Not me, buddy boy...

And NOW we find out his missus died because The Atom was doing the Watusi on her cerebellum?!?

What kind of a fantasy world are we living in when we have to find new ways to bring back Sadass villains like Boomerang back?

And when the Farq are they going to bring back Barry Allen?! They'll bring back Ollie and they'll bring back Hal, but screw old Bar' who just so happens to have been the character that prompted the WHOLE FREAKIN' RETURN OF SUPER-HEROES IN THE FIRST PLACE!

I demand that the writers and editors at DC be the next killed in "IDENTITY CRISIS." (And by the way, will you for the love of 'Mazing Man, quit it with the "Crisis" titles! It was clever when you did it with Crisis on Infinite Earths, since it tied back to the first JLA/JSA team-up, but for Lucy Lane's sake, let it go!)

And while I'm ranting, STOP LETTING SCOTT MORSE DO FILL-IN ISSUES OF PLASTIC MAN! If Kyle's too busy that month, just don't put out the book!

And... to you of this NEW GENERATION OF COMICS CREATORS, let me end with this... YOU SORRY BASTAGES SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING WHAT YOU'VE DONE! Not only to the characters that generations of fans have known and loved, but to those creators who actually gave a crap about them! You couldn't wait to toss 'em out. "F-You!" you said to Curt Swan, Kurt Shaffenberger, Bob Haney, Jim Aparo, and a host of others. Kicked 'em to the curb like the ruffian gang members you most likely are! They're old! They can't fight back! And then you act all sad when they die... forgetting that because of what you're doing, they're going to be spinning in their graves for eons to come!

Now, that, old man...

is a rant.
